Did you know?

The Panther tank featured eight axles equipped with travel wheels. Each wheel consisted of a pair of discs, and their arrangement differed between even and odd axles, resulting in partial overlapping. Positioned at the foremost part was a toothed drive wheel, while at the rear, a tension wheel was in place. Just behind the drive wheel, a small return pulley was located, assisting in elevating the top section of the belt before it engaged with the teeth of the drive wheel. Similar to the prototype, the travel wheels were supported by double torsion bars for suspension. These travel wheels boasted an 860 mm diameter and sported a complete rubber rim around their perimeters to ensure a smoother ride. The belts themselves measured 660 mm in width.
